An AMBER Alert was issued for a missing 16-year-old girl who was abducted by a 21-year-old man out of Portland, Tennessee.

Shortly after it was issued, officials canceled it and said the girl was found in Portland unharmed. However, TBI reported that the investigation was continuing.

Officials said 16-year-old Destiney Faith Aldridge was last seen wearing gray stretch pants, a black short sleeve shirt and black Nike sandals on September 5 at her home in Portland.

Officials describe Aldridge as blonde, with hazel eyes, 5'0" tall and weighs 100 pounds.

Officials said she was abducted by 21-year-old Ronnie Wilmoth, a white man with brown hair, blue eyes, weighing 125 pounds and 6'0" tall. Wilmoth is now wanted for one count of aggravated kidnapping.

Wilmoth was last seen wearing jeans, a pink T-shirt and red cap.

Investigators said that Aldridge is 8 months pregnant.

Officials believe the two are in a white KIA Optima with Tennessee tag of #9L08H0.

Anyone with any information is asked to reach out to TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND or the Portland Police Department at 615-325-3434.
